We have completed the "Digital edition of Thomas Gray's letters" project. Gray's correspondence is now available in a new standards-based full-text edition. The new edition includes improvements to the bibliographic records, such as consistent recording of postmarks, locations of authors and addressees, and updated information on people, locations, and events mentioned.

Gray's English poems are now also available in the newly launched Eighteenth-Century Poetry Archive, which includes a wealth of analytical results across multiple layers (phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, pragmatic).

In celebration of the tercentenary of Gray's birth, we have given our Website a facelift with a few updates, but no changes in functionality. Let us know what you think!

Thomas Gray Archive: Winter 2015 update

We have started work on the new digital edition of Gray's letters. Alongside the availability of full-text for all letters, the new edition will also include improvements to the records, such as consistent recording of postmarks, locations of authors and addressees, and updated information on people, locations, and events mentioned.

We have added a Gray at 300 section on the home page, where we will post any news about events, talks, and exhibitions celebrating Gray's enduring legacy during the 2016 tercentenary year.

Thomas Gray Archive: Autumn 2015 update

With Gray's 300th birthday approaching fast, we have been making our own preparations to celebrate his lasting legacy over the course of next year. Here is what we have planned so far:

* New digital edition of Gray's letters (based on the new TEI/XML guidelines for encoding correspondences),
* Continuation of the "Close reading Gray, digitally"-project with a focus on enriching information across multiple analytical layers (phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, pragmatic),
* Expansion of the finding aid to include Gray's prose works.

All external links on the Related Links page have been verified.

Thomas Gray Archive: Summer 2015 update

We are pleased to announce the completion of our collaborative project with the Cultures of Knowledge research project.  The aim of the project was to make the Archive's calendar of Gray's correspondence discoverable and usable in the Early Modern Letters Online (EMLO) union catalogue of correspondence from the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries.  Gray's correspondence is now available in EMLO and he will be joined over the coming year by numerous other eighteenth-century correspondents.

The Archive's Gray bibliography has been updated.
